On arrival in Carnamah a plug came loose and petrol poured over the motorcycle's cylinders and burst into flames [5]
A number of people gathered and helped extinguish the flames but not before considerable damage was done [5]
The morning after 17 Macpherson Street burnt down he parked his bike as normal and then realised the shop was gone [P129]
